'Too Fat To Fly' Passenger Sues Southwest Airlines For 'Discriminatory Actions'
Kenlie Tiggeman, the overweight passenger who garnered national
attention last May after she claimed a Southwest gate agent told her she
was "too fat to fly," is now suing the airline.
Tiggeman, who lives in New Orleans and blogs about weight loss on her
website, AllTheWeigh.com, filed an injunction against Southwest in
district court on April 20, alleging that the Southwest agents "did not
follow their company policy and chose to discriminate, humiliate and
embarrass" her in front of "airport onlookers," and that the airline
uses "discriminatory actions ... toward obese customers."
